Adetutu Adedokun, a staff member of the Department of State Services (DSS), has been identified as the woman who leapt into the Lagos Lagoon on Thursday.
According to Channels Television, office sources stated that Adedokun was an unarmed combat teacher.
She was also rumored to have recently gotten engaged.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency’s Permanent Secretary, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, stated in a statement on Thursday that the cab driver said she was having a furious conversation with her fiancé before alighting and plunging into the lagoon.
Oke-Osanyintolu stated again on Friday that the search and rescue crew was still on the water looking for the body.
“Further investigation revealed that the lady alighted from an Uber taxi car on the bridge and plunged into the lagoon.
”The driver of the taxi claimed she was having a heated conversation with her fiancé before alighting from the car.
“The LRT, men of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, LASWA and officials of the Department of State Services are currently on ground working together to search for the victim.”
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotosho, said rescue teams after intense search and rescue efforts were unable to find the victim.
He said, “The rescue teams called off their search by 7pm because it was already dark. They will continue the search tomorrow (Friday); you know it is water, the wave would have taken the body somewhere else. But we will search everywhere.”
